WAR ON BANDITRY: Details Alleging Who Has Been Funding And Protecting Bandits Emerge

People in Kenya have been made aware of those they believe are aiding the criminals. With violence rising in the borderlands of northwest Kenya during the past six months, President William Ruto imposed a curfew there a few weeks ago. He ordered the national army to back the police against cattle rustlers.

There have been numerous stories of security officers being attacked and attacked themselves by members of the local community, as well as numerous accounts of people being killed and injured. To date, no administration has been able to bring peace to the troubled area successfully. During a security operation in Suguta Valley in 2012, at least 42 police officers and police reservists lost their lives.

Cecelia, a representative of the Turkana people, makes several claims. Florence Jematia, a counterpart from Baringo, said that the country's top politicians are responsible for shielding the criminals. Some went even further, saying certain lawmakers had been seen transporting robbers in their helicopters rather than denouncing the act. This report has generated a lot of feedback from readers throughout the country. A lawmaker for Turkana Central claimed that the entire district is uninhabitable right now since bandits had taken over the area. The loss of human life and property were major factors in the decision to deploy the military, according to top security officials who spoke before a joint sitting of the House.

Legislators allegedly stated that top leaders in the afflicted regions are financing the killings, according to a story provided by People Daily, when debating an adjournment motion sought to discuss the insecurity in the affected counties. In light of this new information, they have indicated that they should be scrutinized.
